Yes, if he or she were a civil war buff, or just generally liked a good adventure story. It seemed that the descriptions of the specifics of the war went on a long time and became a little repetitive. Best part are the characters and their interrelationships-their motivations.
Probably Old Man Treslow-he had a ton of integrity and grit. All the others had some serious flaws of basic character.
Just the first book in this series and his work is about the same.
Delaney-he's sharp, cynical and entertaining.
I'll probably eventually listen to the whole series, Cornwell seems to get you hooked on his stories.
